Why File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
When a wrongful death occurs, there could be a great many reasons why. If it was a car accident, for example, the other driver may have been negligent, or a part that was negligently manufactured or installed may have malfunctioned. Workplace accidents commonly lead to wrongful deaths, as do defective products (this could possibly lead to a product liability lawsuit). Whatever spurs the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit, the goal will be to obtain monetary compensation from those responsible for the tragedy.
There are several types of damages, or forms of compensation, that a personal injury lawyer may be able to pursue. For example, your compensation could include the financial support your family member provided if he or she had not died. There may also have been substantial medical expenses incurred prior to the passing of your loved one. Not only are you dealing with an incredible amount of emotional stress, but you may also be facing substantial financial burdens. A lawsuit may be your only way to hold accountable those parties responsible for your tragedy.
